The passing of the first Three Time World Heavyweight Champion, Muhammed Ali on June 6th, polarised mainstream media and their audiences in the coverage on his life and Legacy. Muhammed Ali was ‘more than just a Boxer’. He was a Black, Muslim man in Pre-Civil Rights Era America and he would go on to be an activist for the remainder of his life. Erasing these facts not only erases his importance to Black people worldwide, but the prejudice and struggles Ali endured.
